Weaver bowls us over

ONE of our readers bowled us over when he sent in this photograph of a cricket match in Ambergate.

John Weaver, of Milford, emailed the snap over to us. It was taken in 1958 by a chap called Bryan Stone.

Mr Weaver thought it would be of interest to fellow readers.

He said: “Bryan now lives in Switzerland, and is unable to provide any detail about the photograph.

“Most of the players must be nearly 80 years old.”

Now we want to hear from anyone who can tell us more about this picture.

Were you playing in this match, or do you know someone who did?

Perhaps you know someone who might have been involved with cricket in Ambergate back then?

Our sports editor Kev Miles is pretty certain the picture is of the Hurt Arms ground, and that behind the first wall on the right of the snap is the A6 road.

If you can tell us anything about this photograph, then please get in touch by ringing 01773 514153 or emailing editor@belpernews.co.uk.
